About PNA:

PNAs are oligonucleotide analogs in which the sugar-phosphate backbone of DNA is substituted by amino-ethyl-glycine backbone. Invented in 1991 by scientists at the University of Copenhagen, Prof. Peter E. Nielsen, Prof. Ole Buchardt, Dr. Michael Egholm, and Dr. Rolf H. Berg (Copenhagen Inventor Group) PNAs hybridize strongly and sequence-specifically to complementary DNA or RNA. They however are not degraded by nucleases or proteases. These properties of PNA have made them extremely attractive for applications in molecular biology, diagnostics, as well as in antisense and anti-gene therapies.
